It rained all day on Saturday and I was very bored. We did jobs all day: we went to see Bob the Carpet in the morning where I played with some of Bob's toys, then on the way back we stopped to get some cat food. When we finally got back home, we went out for a walk in the rain (and I nearly fell asleep). We did more jobs in the afternoon, and finished off by going to the Really Big Shop. It wasn't too bad though, I got to run around a lot and I helped Mum and Dad choose a new kettle (we got a shiny one). We also got me another CBeebies Comic, 'cos I had so much fun playing with the one Ma got me last week:



The weather was much better on Sunday, but it took me a long time to get Mum and Dad out of bed in the morning. They said that "the clocks had changed" and that I should go back to sleep, but it didn't make much sense to me. And I couldn't see any difference in the clocks when I finally managed to get everyone up. I did seem to spend most of the day feeling tired and hungry though.

In the afternoon, my mate Ewan and his sister Ellen came round and we all went to park to play. Ewan rode his trike all the way there, and Ellen took her scooter so we got there really fast. Ewan impressed everyone by learning how to peddle his trike while we were there, and Ellen was very kind and pushed me on the swings for ages. We all had a great time!

Ma has been staying with us this week, and it's been great, although rather busy. It started on Monday morning when some Decorators arrived (they're a bit like Builders, but they don't make as much mess and they're a bit quieter). I helped them by rearranging their brushes and tools for them, but pretty soon Mum decided that it might be best if I left them alone, so I had to make do with watching them from the playroom instead. They were really speedy: by the end of the day they'd painted the entire stairwell twice!

After the excitment of meeting the Decorators, we then took Mum to see a man in a funny white coat called Mr Hedgehog the Dentist. I sat quietly with Ma while the Dentist put Mum in a funny chair and poked her mouth with shiny and buzzy things. It didn't look like much fun to me, and I wasn't very happy when the Dentist tried to put a shiny thing in my mouth too. He did let me play with the shiny thing later though, and he gave me a Scooby-Doo sticker for being brave; so I think he's OK really.

Later on Monday, we met up with lots of different groups of my friends at Gym Tots. There were lots of my friends from Tots, and my mate Ewan was there too. We had a great time playing on the Big Softplay, and I really enjoyed banging some sticks together in the singy bit. I also learnt how to walk on a beam (it's a bit tricky but it's not too bad if you don't look down). Mum had to go to Work in the afternoon, and so Ma ended looking after me all by herself. We went to the park and the library, and generally had a great time.

We tried to stay out of the house on Tuesday to give the Decorators some space to paint. Tuesday is always very busy: we go to Tots in the morning and then we go Swimming in the afternoon. And after swimming we went out to a cafe in Whitchurch, where I polished off an enormous Flapjack all by my self (it was yummy). By the time we got back home, the Decorators had finished and were playing football with some of the big children in my road! Everyone seems really pleased with the result, although I think it's a bit smelly.

Ma also finished my new blanket today. It's taken a lot of effort, but I think it's great: it's really warm and I like cuddling up in it:



We didn't do much today, partly because it was raining and partly because I was a bit tired after all the excitment of the past few days (I slept for over two hours this afternoon!). I was a bit sad at lunchtime because we had to take Ma to the station at lunchtime so she could go back home. The trains were quite exciting though: they go "Duu Duu", and there were lots of them. Ma's train didn't go straight away, so I had plenty of opportunity to say "Di Di, Da" and wave her bye-bye. It was sad to see her go, but I'm sure we'll see her again soon.

I was so grumpy on Thursday that my lovely Childminder nearly rang Mum to come and get me. Mum thinks it was a combination of hacing some more teeth arrive, being a bit tired and being a bit toddler. I wasn't very nice to anyone all day: the only time I cheered up was when it was time to go home. Mum was very embarassed and made me say sorry and I was much better behaved on Friday.

However, this has been another very exciting weekend: It all started on Saturday afternoon, when Ma and Pa arrived! (The morning was pretty boring: I helped Mum and Dad clean the house and do the shopping.) I had a lovely afternoon showing Ma and Pa all my toys and pottering about the house (I enjoyed showing Ma and Pa my new room).

Then after tea I began to get that "Something Is Going On" feeling again. Ma and Pa left the house while I was in the bath, and then Mum appeared looking all dressed up. Then Dad dissapeared while I was having my story, and when he came back he was all dressed up too! Then they put me in the car! It was very exciting!

When we stopped about twenty minutes later, Ma and Pa were already there. And they were with Aunty Cheryl! It turned out it was her birthday, and that we'd all been invited to her party! There was a Ceilidh band, just like last weekend, and they were very good. I entertained them by doing my roundy-round dance and chasing a big green balloon while they were setting up. Then I joined in a few of the dances until Mum and Dad decided it was Time For Bed.

Mum and Dad tried quiet hard to get me to settle in my pram, but I was having none of it. I'll admit I was a bit tired by this point, but I was very excited and there was no way I was going to bed while there was a party going on! They had to give up in the end, especially when I saw that someone had put out lots of yummy food on one of the tables. I had a whale of a time after that. The band was great, but the best bit was eating cakes while watching Aunty Cheryl do some Morris Dancing with big sticks and bells and white napkins. it was a great party!

Mum and Dad eventually took me home at about 10pm, although I was so excited that I didn't fall sleep until we got home. However I was really rather tired by then and fell asleep as soon as my head hit my pillow.

As you can imagine, everyone was a bit tired on Sunday morning. However, we all felt better after eating some yummy croissants:



After my afternoon nap, we went out to Louis' birthday part at Cefyn Mably Farm. Even though it was very wet, I had a lovely time running about and looking at tall the animals. My favourite was a ferret that hid every time I rattled its cage. Then we went inside to go on the soft play and eat Party Food. We all had a great time:





We came back home in time for tea, but I wasn't very hungry. We all waved goodbye to Pa after that (he has to go to work tomorrow), but Ma is staying with us for a few days. It's all very exciting!

I had a very busy day on Tuesday. We went to Tots in the morning, and then in the afternoon we went swimming, to the doctors (my cough has come back) and to the Big Shop! Me and Mum were wiped out by the end of it all, especially after our busy weekend away.

This morning, I met up with Rebecca at Gym Tots. It was great: I learnt how to do a forward-roll (with a lot of help from the instructor), and in the song bit I did some drumming on the mats with some hefty wooden sticks (they make a really good noise). This afternoon I mostly did sleeping: I slept for nearly three hours before Mum decided to wake me up (I normally sleep for an hour and a bit). I felt much better afterwards.

Me and Mum were very busy when we got home from my lovely Childminder's on Friday. However, I didn't get a "Something Is Going On" feeling until Mum got out my little suitcase and started putting clothes into it (I decided to help a bit by packing some toys and books, although I had to take some things out to get them to fit). We did a lot more rushing about the house when Dad came home, and things started to pile up in the hall. By the time I'd been in the bath, I was sure that "Something Was Up" and there was no way I was going to lie down in my cot. After a bit of fuss, the bundled me into the car and we set off into the night. It was very exciting!

I tried my hardest to stay awake by singing, but I must have nodded off eventually as when when we arrived at Ma's house it was very late. I was very tired (it took me a long time to settle down), but it was nice to see Ma again.

I played with Ma a bit on Saturday morning, but then she had to go out to do something with her friends. Mum and Dad took me to a nearby park by way of a shop. The best bit in the park was the gate:



After lunch, Mum dressed me up in some smart clothes (they've got a Lion on them - I think they're really cool) and we all went off in the car again. I fell asleep (I was really tired after the journey on Friday evening), and when I woke up we were with lots of strange people in a big hall. Mum pointed out a lady called Liz in a beautiful dress as someone she used to go to school with; I thought she looked lovely. Then I noticed that everyone was dressed up really smartly (including Dad!), and that lots of people were taking photos. We all then went outside to play, and I met lots of people while some other people walked round with trays of things to eat (I wish they did this at playgroup!), and some other people played some instruments (I liked watching them especially). Lots of people liked my Lion jumper, especially when I pointed at it and said "Raahhh!".



Quite a bit later on, we all went back inside and we all had lots of yummy food to eat. Then some people did some speaches and things, but I didn't hear much of that as I was playing quietly with Dad in off to the side. I was geting a bit tired by this time, so Mum and Dad tried to get me to go to sleep, but I refused to go to sleep in my pram - it was all too exciting!

In the end, Dad took me off to watch the Ceilidh band set up their things. I thought they were great, and I was soon off dancing and doing my thing on the dance floor with the rest of the children. I'm really good at dancing: I can do a roundy-round dance, a running-on-the-spot dance and I can clap my hands while running about. I had a great time! Unfortunately, dancing is quite tiring and I flaked out in Mum's arms. I had a lovely time at Liz's wedding though.

Sunday was also very exciting: we went to see Aunty Ceri! She's very funny and I like her alot. And after we'd been there for a little while, Aunty Annie turned up! It was very exciting! Because it was a nice day, we decided to go to Reddish Vale Farm where we saw lots of animals including ducks, rabbits, chickens, sheep, cows, horses, pigs and even a llama. I even had choclate cake for my lunch because I fell asleep before Mum and Dad could give me some proper food (it was just fine by me though!)



After lunch, we all went back to Aunty Ceri's house, and from there we went to a park. Then we went home for tea. While we were eating, the doorbell rang and Ma and Pa were there! Then a short while later it rang again, and Nana and Grandpa were there. And a short while after that, it range again and Aunty Sally was there! it was lovely to see everyone, but it was almost too exciting as I was really rather tired. We headed home soon after that. I enjoyed singing to the lights as the passed over the car for bit, but I dropped off eventually. It took a long time to get home.

I was a bit tired on Monday, but we had a fun day. We went to playgroup to meet my mate Ewan as normal, but instead of going home for lunch, we went on the bus into town! Buses are really exciting, especially if you make "Brummm" noises as they're going along. We had lunch, and then went to the Early Learning Centre to play on the toys which was fab (they've got lots of great things). After that, I fell asleep and when I woke up we were heading back on the bus (and my pram had a large number of extra bags on it).

I've been feeling much better since I've been taking my yummy yellow medicine. It's good stuff, although it doesn't seem to help much with two new teeth that are trying to break through. I've now got seven of them, and in the past two months I've cut five new ones! On the plus side, they're pretty sharp and they're really good for biting stuff (especially Dad's fingers).

We met up with my mate Ewan at playgroup on Monday morning. In the afternoon, my friend George come to play and we had a great time running around, eating biscuits and playing with my cars. George is pretty clever and can do lots of animal sounds; I was particularly impressed by his impression of an elephant (complete with trunk) and a lion (complete with roar). He can also say some quite interesting words; my favourite is "Hoover". He makes me laugh.

On Wednesday, Mum and me made Aunty Lou's Banana Cake. It's really quick to make: by the time I'd gotten flour all over the table, Mum had mashed up the bananas, mixed everything together in a big bowl and put it all in the microwave. Eight minutes later, it was ready! It's very yummy indeed: I had some for my pudding at tea-time and I ate it so fast that Dad thought I'd dropped it on the floor!

I've been a bit poorly this week. We went to Roath Park with Bella on Wednesday to feed the ducks, but I was a bit sad about the whole thing (Mum had to try very hard to get a smile for the photo!) Bella had a good time feeding the ducks though.



I went to my Childminder's on Thursday, but I wasn;t feeling well at all. As my lovely Childminder said to Mum: "He wasn't himself - all he wanted to do was sit on my lap and be cuddled, and several people remarked that they'd never seen me sit so still!" I was very tired by the time we got home; in fact I was so tired I refused to go in the bath.

I was feeling a bit better on Friday morning, so we decided to try me at my Childminders again. In retrospect, it wasn't the best idea: I was fine for the first half hour, but then I started to cough and feel poorly again and nothing would make me feel better. In the end, Dad had to come home from work to get me. We went home via the Doctors, and after listening to my chest they decided to give me some yummy yellow antibiotics.

After a long sleep I felt a bit better, so Dad and me baked some biscuits and made Naughty NooNoo eat Po's scooter on the computer:



We've had a quiet weekend, and I've done quiet a lot of sleeping. We did go out for a Pub Lunch with Bella this afternoon (I had a lasagne, but everyone's else food seemed to be much tastier so I ened up eating that instead). Afterwards, everyone came back to our house for cake and coffee, and I showed Bella how to play with my Moomin beach ball.

Today was Mum's birthday! I helped unwrap her presents, which was very exciting (there was lots of shiny wrapping paper). Then while Mum went in the shower, I went downstairs to help make breakfast with Dad and we secretly set up a cake with candles and everything. When Mum came down we sang "Happy Birthday" and I helped blow out the candles. It was great!

It was a very busy day: we went to Tots in the morning where everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to Mum again. And after lunch we went to my swimming lesson! Unfortunately, I've not been feeling too well these past few days (I've got one of my nasty cough-cough-cough-sick colds), and I was sick all over the changing room just before we were about to go in the pool. We still managed to go swimming, although Mum did drag me out every time I started to cough...

After that we did some shopping at Marks and Spencers. I went in the trolley and played with Mum's keys, so it wasn't too boring. When we'd finished there, we went to do some more shopping in Boots, but it didn't last long as Mum suddenly realised that she couldn't find her keys! She asked me where I'd put them but I'd forgotten (I think she was a bit cross with me). We then spent quite a long time wandering around the shop asking people if they'd seen them but noone had. Mum wasn't very happy.

In the end, we gave up looking and Mum contacted kind Aunty Aimee to come and rescue us. However, just as she arrived in the carpark, someone came out of the shop with the keys! We were all very pleased (I was getting hungry), so we all went back to our house for a snack and a drink. We were all a bit tired after all the excitment, and I wasn't feeling very well, so we watched the TV:



I think Mum had an eventful birthday, but I hope she enjoyed it.

I met up with Rowan and Mabli at softplay on Saturday morning, and we all had a lovely time running about and climbing on things. Afterwards, we all went for some yummy lunch at Mabli's house.

After my nap, Nana and Grandpa arrived! And they came with presents: a fab "Thomas the Tank Engine" hat and a cool jigsaw from Granny. It was very exciting! Grandpa carried me to the park in the Back Carrier. I had a lovely time on the swings, but the slide didn't work very well (I had to crawl down it). Nana and Grandpa baby-sat for me in the evening whilst mum and dad went out to a wedding party for one of the mums from Tots. I was a very good boy and stayed fast asleep. I think mum and dad must have been out quite late because they were very tired this morning...



On Sunday morning, Dad and Grandpa did lots of jobs round the house while me, Nana and Mum went to the Big Shop to get something for lunch. But we didn't just end up with stuff to eat: Nana bought me some trousers and Mum bought me some Wellies as well! I tried them out after lunch: they're a bit big and I fall over them occasionally but they're great at keeping my feet dry. Or at least they are when they're on my feet; they don't work so well if you take them off to see how well they float in the water tray.

Dad and Grandpa were still doing jobs in the afternoon (they were doing something with a big ladder outside), so I helped them by rearranging their tools. Then I helped Mum and Nana do some gardening (althought I wasn't allowed to use the big scissors). Nana and Grandpa had to go home after tea, and I was very sad. It was lovely to have them here.
